Advances in Science and Research (ASR) is the international journal of the European Meteorological Society (EMS) for contributions in applied meteorology and climatology. ASR publishes original contributions on (a) advances in understanding weather and climate processes and (b) the development of operational systems and applications of meteorology, climatology, and related disciplines. This also includes new challenges and the role of communication, education and training, and engagement with society for the profession and its practices. ASR-CAMC is an open-access journal for contributions presented at the annual meetings of the EMS and other related events.
From now on, manuscripts that involve funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) or the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) will benefit from direct settlement of article processing charges (APCs).
To show our support for Ukraine, all fees for papers from authors (first or corresponding authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception will be if the corresponding author or first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.
In accordance with current European restrictions, Copernicus Publications does not step into business relations with and issue APC-invoices (articles processing charges) to Russian and Belarusian institutions. The peer-review process and scientific exchange of our journals including preprint posting is not affected. However, these restrictions require that the first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) has an affiliation and invoice address outside Russia or Belarus.
